Actor Terry Crews filed a police report Wednesday claiming to be a victim of a crime, a source inside the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to ABC News.

Crews' decision to report his alleged assault comes weeks after he tweeted out that a "high level Hollywood executive" had groped him a year earlier, grabbing his gentials.

"My wife n I were at a Hollywood function previous year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates", he tweeted on October 10, days after movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment scandal was revealed by media.

"I was going to kick his ass right then - but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear", Crews tweeted. Crews revealed that he had his genitals fondled by a high-level Hollywood executive in front of the actor's wife.

As The Hollywood Reporter notes, the suspect in Crews' police report is believed to be WME agent Adam Venit, who was put on leave from the agency after the allegations surfaced last month.


Venit also represents A-list celebrities such as Brett Ratner and Dustin Hoffman, both of whom have been facing sexual misconduct allegations in the recent past. Because this kind of thing happened to me.

'I let it go. ( few) What r the repercussions?(many) Do u want 2 work again? And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go, ' he wrote. (Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?

The 6ft 3in giant, best known for his role in the TV sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, first spoke about the incident in a lengthy Twitter thread following the Harvey Weinstein scandal. He added that he hoped his coming forward "will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless".

Madison declined to state when the report was filed and what was in it, but noted that the department's Robbery Homicide Division is handling the investigation.
